Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

The Kirkwood cottage carriage house is located 4 blocks off i-630 - just minutes from the va med center, UAMS and children's hospitals, in the heart of the business, south main (SoMa) and river market districts. The carriage house is a good choice for business travelers or couples who want a romantic getaway and it is perfect to accommodate your extended stay guests. Pricing will depend upon length of stay.

A private entrance through the brick courtyard (doorbell at the privacy fence gate), hardwoods in living room, painted wood floors upstairs and the original brick floors in entry and kitchen. Two gas log heaters, period light fixtures, and a wood-burning stove add to the historic nature of this upscale 1,400 square foot barn.

Updated features like wifi and two flat panel tv’s with direct tv, a whirlpool tub in the downstairs bathroom, another full bathroom upstairs, a full size washer and dryer, and quality mattresses in the two adjoining bedrooms ensure you the comfort you deserve.

The kitchen is furnished with a side by side refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, two coffee makers (12 cup and single cup) and self-cleaning oven. Dishes, silverware and utensils are included for your convenience, as well as thick, fluffy towels and linens. The enclosed courtyard has a small pond and a gas grill, should you want to cook or entertain outdoors. Automatic lighting means you never come home to a dark house.

The carriage house is located in the governor's mansion historic neighborhood and is great for walking or bike riding, with an active arts and entertainment district just 3 blocks away on south main. The river market is quite close as well, with many restaurants, bars, shopping, and the clinton presidential library. Walgreens, a grocery store and post office are just blocks away.

About Donna Skulman-Loyd

semi retired couple

Donna Skulman-Loyd purchased this cottage in 1983

Why Donna Skulman-Loyd chose Arkansas

We bought the historic Kirkwood Cottage (circa 1882) and its carriage barn initially because it was close to work. But the historic district is full of interesting people and always has something going on.

What makes this cottage unique

Large open space in the heart of the city - close to everything!

We are a small pet friendly place (owners have a Yorkie) so you never have to leave home without them and the carriage house even has a doggie door (a $25 non-refundable pet deposit per pet).

Quaint and comfortable

Exactly as described: two beds, two baths, living room, dining area, kitchen, washer, and dryer. . Comfortable. Both bedrooms are upstairs, and one bath. Access to one bedroom is through the other. Second bathroom is downstairs. Satellite TV. Nice courtyard. No problems. Would recommend to others.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

This place was a precious getaway! Great location for meandering Little Rock. Donna was a gracious and attentive host; we appreciated every kindness and extra that she provided for our stay. The house was inviting and very well equipped with everything needed, as well as clean and relaxing. It definitely made for a fun weekend. Thank you much, Donna!

Just perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay with Donna....everything was exactly as represented. She has lovely, eclectic taste...comfy beds...a tremendous garden at a reasonable price. Close to The Root, Esse Museum, and the hip SOMA district. A wonderful walk to the Governor's Mansion. We will definitely stay at the Carriage House again!
